Just a quick little reminder on this fine Monday morning that we’ll have two brand new patterns for knits (from sizes XS to 3X) launching in the morning (10AM Pacific time)!

We’ll also be officially releasing our brand new book, The Colette Guide to Sewing Knits by Alyson Clair. Hope to see you there!

Fantastic book. I have been sewing with knits for quite a while now and a lot of things in here are incredibly helpful and I particularly like the section on determining which type of knit you have! Great patterns as well! Congratulations

I’m so excited that I feel slightly nervous! This can’t be normal.


For those of us waiting patiently for international shipping, it’s going to be excruciating. At least we get a peek tomorrow!

Thank you very much for your efforts. It would be really great!
